In addition to teacher workshops and gallery visits, Women & Their Work presents in-school performances at school assemblies, giving large numbers of students the opportunity to experience contemporary dance, music and theater, as well as meet and work with the visiting artists. Past assemblies have featured video/performance artist Tapestry Dance Company, Ruby Nelda Perez, Miami performer Natasha Tsakos and Atlanta hip-hop artists E. Period.
Women & Their Work also brings visual artists to the classroom to work one on one with art classes. In 2007, through the Visual Artist Network, Women & Their Work brought Portland ceramics artist, Kowkie Durst, to Reagan High School for a week long residency to help develop their fledgling ceramics program. As a result, the school instituted a permanent ceramics class the following school year.
